Al-Naqab prison detainees continue protests against illegal procedures
The Ministry of Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs in Gaza reports that the prisoners of Al-Naqab prison decide to continue their protest steps after being subjected to a state of repression and new penalties by the occupation authorities.
The Ministry of Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners in Gaza reported that the prisoners of Al-Naqab Prison decided, on Thursday, to disable the security checks, return meals, and continue to wear prison clothes issued by the Israeli Prison Service (IPS), and sit in the prison squares.
Significantly, previous statements by the Prisoners' Club highlighted that wearing the prison clothes (Shabas) means that "every prisoner is ready for collective and direct confrontation with the jailer."
The ministry said that the prisoners' measures were a result of being subjected to a state of repression amid a state of extreme tension across the prison.
Additionally, the Israeli Knesset, on Wednesday, approved in a preliminary reading, a bill backed by the occupation government to impose the death penalty on Palestinians who commit to their right of armed resistance against illegal Israeli settlers.
In that context, the Prisoners' Club reported also on Wednesday, that the Al-Naqab prison administration raided Sections 6-28 twice in one day. They conducted extensive searches of the sections and transferred 11 prisoners to solitary confinement.
The Supreme National Emergency Committee of the Palestinian Captive Movement in the Israeli occupation prisons agreed, in conjunction with the new Knesset-approved bill, to approve a new measure of escalation against the Israeli Prison Service, which included night confusion operations in multiple prisons and departments.
